SO happy I could cry.

Almost 3 months ago, my Grandmother passed away. She always spoiled me rotten, always - and even in her passing, she continued to do the same.

I was lucky enough to inherit her car, which was such a blessing since the hubs and I have been a one car household for almost 2.5 years. With the lil' ninja on it's way, and the hubs working 10 hour days (not getting home until almost 7 or 7:30 every night), functioning with only one car was becoming nearly impossible. So, for the car alone, I am eternally grateful.

However, she also left me a chunk of an IRA. A decent sized chunk which the hubs and I had planned on just hanging on to, but had wanted to pay off some debt. Last weekend, I talked to my mom and dad, and they convinced me that I should just cash it out and pay off our biggest credit card (leaving the rest of our credit card debt manageable and probably will be paid off by October).

Today, I did just that. I paid off our big credit card. Our honeymoon, the Mexico trip from earlier this year, numerous kitty emergencies, and God knows what else, all FINALLY paid for.

That, my friends, was the greatest feeling in the world. Knowing when our babe enters this world, we'll essentially be debt free (you know, aside from our car payment and mortgage) is the best feeling in the entire world.

Thanks again continue to be my guardian angel. Love you much, and miss you more.


  1. That has to be a wonderful feeling!

  2. Aw, that's FABULOUS!! We have a lot of cards (and student loans, ugh) left, BUT i paid two of my personal cards off last week and it feels AMAZING! I know that when I pay off my last two (at about 4k, ugh) I will basically be over the moon for a while. Its amazing how much debt can weigh your mind down, without even realizing it!

    Congrats on getting the card paid off!
